It's not uncommon for a section of pool liner to pull out of the track. This guide will explain how to reinstall the liner back into the track.


Step by Step


Step 1

This is an image of how the liner bead should fit into the track.

Please Note: This image includes a liner lock. This is the thin white piece with barbs. See step 6 for more information on liner lock.

Step 2

In order to do this job correctly, the liner needs to be warm. We suggest doing this on a warm and sunny day so that the liner is stretchy. If the weather is cold, keep a warm bucket of water ready. Pouring warm water on the liner will make it more pliable.

Step 3

Grab the top of the liner and pinch together the bead track and liner with your thumb and first two fingers.

Step 4

Pull up on the liner and guide the bead into the track by applying pressure on the bead.

Step 5

If you are dealing with a section that is longer than a foot, work in one direction 6" at a time.

Step 6

If the liner continues to pull away from the track, you will want to consider using some kind of liner lock. This is a flexible plastic piece that prevents the liner from pulling away from the wall by wedging it into the bead track.
